It may have been another successful year for Super Junior, but 2014 brought many painful moments for Leeteuk.
During an emotional scene on travel reality show One Fine Day, the 31-year-old choked back the tears as confessed that he will be glad to start 2015.
Leetuek, 31, and bandmates Eunhyuk, 28, and Donghae, 28, were on a trip together in Switzerland for the MBC Music show.
The “Mamacita” singer revealed that when he was high up in the peaks of the Swiss Alps, he thought to himself, “Perhaps I’m a little closer to my dad, my grandmother and my grandfather, who rest in the sky above.”
The SuJu idol lost his father and grandparents in a suspected suicide pact at the beginning of the year. Such was the pain of the past year for Leeteuk that he tearfully admitted, “2014 is a year that I want to erase from my memory.”
